It shall be the duty of the Department of Public Health of the State to cause the foregoing provisions to be enforced; and upon the complaint of said Department of Public Health it shall be the duty of the Attorney General or State's Attorney of the County in which such violation may occur, to institute and prosecute such cause by indictment or information in the manner provided by law.
